    I hate this viewpoint and it isn't true at all. Punk has a lot of definitions, but being successful doesn't kill off that label.

    Based on your criteria of highest number of high quality albums, I will have to go with Bad Religion being the winner here. 16 studio albums spread across 3 decades and all of them sound relevant. I can honestly put any one of them on and enjoy it.

    Ramones come in a close second, but with their music it is much harder to know which album you are listening to. BR at least had different eras of sound.

    Id love to go with Rancid as the winner, but their catalog isnt deep enough to win this contest. ...And Out Come The Wolves is my favorite album of all time.. of ANY genre. It's a perfect album, start to finish.

    Yah it pretty much does. Punk is at its core an underground movement the main point of which is to rattle the cages of the perceived establishment. Once you become part of that establishment, you're not punk, you're commercial.

    Had a dubbed tape of Misfits Earth AD and the Dead Kennedy’s that was my first exposure to Punk . Listened to that incessantly the summer of 93-94 range if I remember right.

    The only Dead Kennedys album that was subpar was Bed Time For Democracy and even then it had some good moments.

    How do you feel about Firehose? the band formed out of the remained members of the minutemen after d. boon died. I really dig their stuff.
